Top 25 Ranking of 2012 – #3:
Brooke Tessmacher

Ranked #17 in 2011

This year, Brooke Tessmacher ranks #3 on Lethalwow.com’s Annual Top 25 Ranking. The first time she has placed in the Top 10 of the ranking, after her breakout year in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. A great year for Brooke, where she was able to have a run on Top of the Knockouts Division, and put on great matches…

In 2011, Brooke Tessmacher returned to TNA Wrestling after injury, and along with her best friend and mentor Tara, she captured the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championship. With every match, she got better and better in the ring, impressing fans and critics alike. Yet one thing still escaped her grasp: The TNA Knockouts Championship…

Tessmacher started off 2012 teaming up with ODB to pick up victories over Mexican America (Rosita and Sarita), at numerous TNA Live Events. Then, on the February 16, 2012 episode of Impact Wrestling, she suffered a loss in a #1 Contendership Battle Royal, which was won by Madison Rayne. She later did battle with Winter, at FWE No Limits, where she lost in a FWE Women’s Title Tournament Semi Final Match. Back in TNA, on the April 19 episode of Impact Wrestling, when in an 8-Knockout tag-team match, Brooke would surprise the world, and pin Knockouts Champion Gail Kim. Over the next two weeks on iMpact Wrestling, she would pin Kim again in a singles match, and then again in a tag-team match. The next week, Tessmacher would become #1 contender after defeating Velvet Sky. The stage was set at TNA’s Sacrifice Pay-Per-Veiw, but Tessmacher would get pinned by Kim, who had her feet on the ropes.

Knockouts Executive Brooke Hogan granted Velvet Sky and Brooke Tessmacher a triple threat Championship match against Kim on the May 17 episode of Impact Wrestling. Gail Kim would retain, after pinning Sky. What came next was June 2, where Tessmacher would survive Sky, Mickie James and BFF Tara, for another shot at Kim and her title. At Slammiversary, in her home state of Texas, Brooke did the unthinkable and ended Gail Kim’s history making, nearly 8 month reign as Knockouts Champion. On June 14 and June 21, Tessmacher retained against Madison Rayne and Mickie James. And on July 12, Tess defeated Gail Kim in Kim’s title re-match. Tessmacher spent the next few weeks beating Madison Rayne and Gail Kim at TNA Live events; However, on August 12, at TNA’s Hardcore Justice Pay-Per-Veiw Tess lost her title to Madison Rayne, due to some very impartial refereeing by Earl Hebner. Just 4 days later, on August 15, Brooke Hogan brought in Taryn Terell to be the new Knockouts referee, and Tessmacher re-gained the championship. This made Brooke a 2-Time TNA Women’s Knockout Champion.

On August 23 on Impact Wrestling, Tessmacher used Open Fight Night to call out her friend and mentor, veteran Wrestler, Tara. Brooke stated that even though she had the Knockouts Championship, she still had to prove to herself that she deserved it, and wanted to beat the woman she had learned so much from. Despite her ambition, after a top rope Superplex, Tara would walk away the victor. Despite the loss, Tessmacher would successfully defend her belt 3 times against Mickie James, at TNA live shows in Georgia. Then at No Surrender, Tess would reprieve herself, by pinning Tara. The next Thursday, on September 13, Tara would snap and attack the Knockouts champion, after a fake in-ring celebration. The next week, Tessmacher would stick up for ring announcer Christy Hemme, who was being bullied by Tara. Tessmacher was backstage watching as Tara pinned ODB to become #1 contender and get another title shot. This time, at TNA Bound for Glory. On October 4, Tessmacher would be pinned by Tara in a tag team match also involving ODB & Gail Kim, but the next week Tessmacher would get a little revenge after she was attacked by Tara following a hard hitting match against Gail Kim. On October 14, at Bound for Glory, Tessmacher despite giving what many felt was the performance of her career, lost her Knockouts championship to Tara. Two weeks later she would lose her rematch after a sick fall to the outside due to Tara’s new beau Jesse Godderz.

Towards the end of the year, Brooke Tessmacher continued to wrestle on a regular basis. Defeating Madison Rayne and Gail Kim at numerous live events in Tennessee, South Carolina, Michigan and Canada. Tessmacher would then end the year on a low note, as on December 27, she would lose an Open Fight Night challenge to Gail Kim–who was seeking revenge on Tessmacher for ending her 8-month title reign.

Tag Team Top 10 of 2012 – #3:
Made in Sin: Allysin Kay and Taylor Made

—In 2012, with the launch of Shine Wrestling—in which each show was broadcast live on Internet Pay-Per-View, we got a brand new tag-team, that is poised to be one of the most memorable in history. That team was the phenomenal pairing of Allysin Kay and Taylor Made, collectively known as “Made in Sin.” Allysin Kay was no stranger to great pairings, already known for pairing with Jessicka Havok as “Team Be Jealous,” and in a stable with Jessicka Havok and Sassy Stephie named the “The Midwest Militia.” But with Taylor Made, they brought an entirely new dynamic.

We first saw the pairing at Shine 1, on July 20, 2012, as they defeated Su Yung and Tracy Taylor. A month later—on August 17, 2012–at Shine 2, Made In Sin picked up another victory, defeating MSEERIE (Christina Von Eerie and MsChif). Their winning streak continued at Shine 3, where they defeated Davina Rose and Shazza McKenzie.

The winning continued in Shimmer Wrestling, where they defeated Shazza McKenzie and Veda Scott on SHIMMER Volume 49. Then came two loses, where they were defeated by Regeneration X (Allison Danger and Leva Bates) on SHIMMER Volume 51, and Kana and LuFisto on SHIMMER Volume 52. Back in Shine, on November 11, 2012, Made In Sin returned to their winning ways, defeating Kimberly and Leva on Shine 5. Made In Sin ended the year with a devastating loss, losing to former WWE Divas Jazz and Kharma. The match was the main event for NWA FUW’s “Underground Shines.”

Despite ending the year with a loss, 2013 is no doubt looking to be a great year for Made in Sin.
